Question about Yamaha RX-V992

1 Answer

Volume not playing

I have a Yamaha V992 receiver which is approximately 10 years old. The receiver volume stopped today while playing the volume for a DVD movie. THe volume light on the receiver volume control is blinking. I haven't been able to get it reset. I haven't found any type of reset so I'm assuming it may have been overlaoded or shorted a circuit of some type. Do you have any suggestions? I live in N. Atlanta, Ga. so I'm planning to find a technician to possibly debug it. Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Will

Re: Volume not playing

I would guess that the blinking vol lite is indicating "protect" mode. This is a case where the amp section is shutdown to prevent further damage as a problem has been found. This is usually because the amp transistors have failed. Expect $25-$35 in parts plus the local labor rate.

I am trying to connect my Bose Wave Radio to my Yamaha RX S 70 receiver so that I can listen to the radio through my speakers. Right now the speakers are connected to the Yamaha...but radio isn't playing...

There's actually 2 ways of doing this.

Using the variable out connections on the Bose, connect your L&R channels to the desired input, I recommend the auxillary, on your Yamaha and select that input. Turn the volume all the way down on your Yamaha. Turn the volume on your Bose all the way up; then readjust the volume as desired on your Yamaha.

Optional connection; the headphone jack. Connect a 3.5mm mini to stereo plug cable from the Bose to Yamaha in the manner described as above and use the volume control approximately the same way.

Can you fix the volume button on the remote on the rx-v992?

No, it's a rubber membrane under the button and rubber "bubble pad" check ebay for replacement, not too expensive. If you need a "system control" remote, look at the Harmony Logitech series. The 620 is around 100 and the 610 is around 70. Great remotes and "Easy" to program. Hope this helps

The volume control knob fell off can i buy a new one model htr 5860 yamaha

Sometimes volume controls are held on by an Allen type screw, which can become loose, allowing it to fall off. You should see a hole in the knob if it is. You might need a long thin Allen Key to get it back on.
Otherwise have checked my spares guide (though it's a few years old) and it seems Yamaha might only do their own spares.

It keeps goin to protectin mode

Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker.
I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there.
I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume.
*****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****

The receiver sound shuts off

There is a problem with the receiver that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output amp section. This is detected and the protection circuit shuts down the receiver. Yamaha uses coupling capacitors between sections to prevent this. If one of these is defective, it would explain your symptom. This should be a relatively simple repair for a repair shop. Expect $10-$25 for parts plus the local labor rate.

Volume light blinking, no sound.

Plug in some headphones as they are usually always active and see if you get any sound and volume control of them.
if not the switches may be stuck .
or the output fuses blown.
it gets sticky to work inside one of these without electronics experience and you can do more damage.
The fuses are about all you are allowed to fix.

Receiver shuts off at times

There is some leakage of DC voltage getting to the output section. DC voltage will cause the protection circuit to kick in and shut down the amp. This should be a relatively simple repair and cost about $15-$30 in parts plus the local labor rate.
